Stevenage 3rd XI v Sawbridgeworth Cricket Club 3rd XI on Sat 09 Jul 2011 at 1:00
Match was Abandoned

Match report Yet another weather affected result for us. I lost the toss and the Stevenage skipper decided to have a bat on a track that looked quite good considering we were in a council run park in the middle of Stevenage.

James Wair and i opened the bowling and, in my opinion James bowled the best spell of his season so far, taking two early wickets. James was replaced after his 7 overs by Gary who bowled magnificently and without my luck before unfortunately Gary's calf went again, therefore had to replace him with Ben.

Ben unfortunately only bowled 4 overs but in that time took the very important wicket of Brownie who scored 55, the reason Ben only bowled 4 overs was due to it pouring down with rain and poor old Ben could not grip the ball at all.

James then came back for a second spell but was pitching the ball too short, enter Tom Waring, who bowled seam up and was swinging an old ball around corners his figures were 4 overs 3 for 20 and i think 18 of those came off his last over, well done Tom.

We did let Stevenage get away from us by not holding our catches we must have dropped 5 or 6 at crucial points of the game, we were also a bowler short on the day.

At tea the heavens opened, which made our task a lot harder.

Bren and Kev opened the batting and dug in before Kev was run out for 2 . Chis joined Bren and the two guys batted very well and got themselves in on a tough track.

The rain then came down and finished off the game in the 16th over. Bren finished on 32 not out and Chis on 14 not out.

To be honest, i don't think we would have got near there total as batting did change with the downpour over tea, but we could have maybe got to 200 and we would have walked away with 19 points, however, we got 10 points and Stevenage 11.
